How fairy tales should really be told

I love the part in the movie Sex and the City when Carrie's reading a fairy tale to Lily and after it ends happily ever after Carrie explains to her that that's not always reality.  Prince Charming doesn't always pull through.
We need more fairy tales like this one, so as not to grow up confused with unrealistic expectations.
Girls, quit trying so hard, he's probably not worth it.  And you're better than him anyway.

Recall the part of Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, with the bridge of Khazad-Dum. Gandalf is standing holding off the forces of darkness. He holds authority. Marry someone who holds authority. The Melchizedek priesthood is the most powerful authority on the face of the earth!

Sooo many things are wrong with this, but things are changing. Women are stronger, taller, smarter, and more beautiful (as seen in the video). One day it will be the other way around. Women will rule the world. The men will come begging!!!

Loved that video. Glad the girl finally got over him and moved on.

A classic metaphor. She got "over him" and she "moved on". Bye Bye Mr. Mullet-head.
